Can you imagine a conservation officer who does not know what they are looking at. Of course not. It must be then that Paul Barker, as Wealden District Council's conservationist was well aware of the origins and originality of the Generating Buildings at Herstmonceux .... Barker left Wealden in 2010 to be replaced by Rowanne Meagher and Geoff Kavanagh and we think that brings us up to date, but we'll keep tabs on the situation.
We will be following Geoff's career with much interest just in case he needs any potty training. We hope not, but we are sure Geoff will be pleased to know that we are here if he needs us .......

MISFEASANCE & MALFEASANCE
When an officer of the courts omits to include evidence that he knows is relevant to a hearing, that is termed misfeasance in public office. Where an officer then tries to cover up his or her misfeasance (as did Ian Kay in the Stream Farm matter), that becomes malfeasance. The difference is that misfeasance is a civil wrong, whereas malfeasance is a criminal offence. The leading case precedent on malfeasance is: R. v Bowden 1995 Court of Appeal (98 1 WLR), where police constable Bowden failed in his duty to protect a member of the public.
That failure is now extended to cover any failure to protect the financial interests of any member of the public, where it is the duty of council officers under Section 4 of the Fraud Act 2006 - and this includes failing to do something as well as not doing it correctly. This means telling the truth about historic buildings and upholding the right of any person to seek to comply with the Climate Change Act 2008.
Attempting to bankrupt anyone, obtain information for third parties or devalue land for the eventual benefit of near neighbours or local property developers, is of course an abuse of process and a violation of the trust that is placed in any civil servant in a position of authority.
POTTY TRAINING - Using a potty correctly may be a new skill for your planning team to learn if they keep missing the bowl or forgetting to flush, or maybe even fumble the paperwork. Being patient and firm with them will help them get it right eventually, even if they sometimes feel frustrated. They should be taught that every person is entitled to a toilet no matter how much their legal team are out to harm a challenging member of the public - and yes we know how irritating it is to be caught out consistently by some members of the public - and yes of course that makes you hate that/those members of the public more - leading you into trying another dirty trick. But will that lead to more spillages?
So, if you are going to plan a vendetta, hoping to harass someone to vacate Wealden land for the benefit of someone else locally, be sure that you don't get caught with your trousers down, forget to flush, or even pull your trousers up too soon. Be careful to stay in the groove by following statute to the letter and don't hope that all Judges or Inspectors will turn a blink eye with a funny handshake - there are many who are not members and these are the airings that are sure to come back to haunt you to reveal what you did and why you did it. Sleep safe at night by doing the right thing. Do not try to deprive anyone of their state granted rights and put the lid down.
